Spring Break Idea: Discount Movie Theaters

Movie Time!

Movie Time!

It’s Spring Break! We’re enjoying the weather and the free time but I have to admit I’ve already heard the cries of what are we doing today? I’m bored!!! One of the things I can always count on to break our “boredom” is to head to the movies.  The movies are usually a good idea but tickets  can add up quickly. A night at the movies has become painfully expensive. With prices hovering over $10 a person, it can really put a dent in your pocketbook. Thankfully we have several dollar/bargain theaters in the Southern California area. There are local dollar theaters in the Inland Empire, LA , Orange and Ventura Counties. I searched and searched and couldn’t find anything for the San Diego area. If you know of one in the area , please email me so I can add it to the list.

We love visiting bargain theaters because they’re inexpensive and if the kids became bored and we need to leave, we are only out a couple of bucks. Family films are particularly popular at these type of theaters, so it’s usually easy to find something for everyone. We’ve had a great experience and I’m sure your family will too!!
